This is the right place if your topic concerns different Nord Keyboards, you are not sure which one is the right one for you, etc.

Re: What is missing in Rhodes sampling of the Nord?

Tricky - very subjective. I've got two Mk1 Rhodes behind me right now ... one is punchy and fun to play, the other is relatively dull. Put through a valve pre-amp they sound much better and more exciting. But they both have a few funky / beating notes and a fair bit of variation across they keyboard - they are far from pristine - but that's part of the charm. My Nord sounds 'better', that is more consistent and cleaner; but that isn't always what I want.

Anyone want to sample these Rhodes or lend me a decent mic / USB interface so I can do it? Southampton, UK!

What is missing in the Nord Rhodes samples are the typical artifacts of a real Rhodes and a natural sustain without loops. The Nord Rhodes sound a bit sterile to me. All are very special and more Nord-like than any of the Rhodes i played since 30 years.
